A breather… enforcing the quiet before the storm!

I’m off.
Folks, I need a break. A breather. Like my laptop, I’m running low on juice.

From today and through next week right up onto and including Monday, 13 August, I shall take myself into a voluntary, self-imposed, absolute and complete Internet blackout. I won’t be blogging, tweeting, or Facebooking. Or emailing, for that matter.

Drastic, huh? Four weeks before my book launch, too.
Bad timing, perhaps?

Nah, perfect timing! This is the creative break before the storm. Batteries on charge, and then full speed ahead…

PLUS!

It’s the school holidays. So I shall have a holiday! ;-) I am going to get up late, make lazy breakfasts, go to the park, take the bus into town, drive to the seaside if the fancy takes us.  I envisage evenings spent barbequeuing and sipping wine until late sitting in the garden. Making cakes and playdough and lego houses and playing games. Hooray!

With that, my friends: Hasta luego! See you soon, properly rested and in high spirits. And then it’ll be all systems go until launch (and beyond)!

Behind the Scenes in “Lego House” with Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran’s “Lego House” is a big hit in the Wells household, not least because my two boys have attached to the notion of singing about building a Lego house (and yes, a lot of singing is being done here lately!).

This morning, I thought I’d bring you a little video clip of the making of the video for “Lego House”, posted by Ed Sheeran himself on YouTube.  As I was watching, it occurred to me that as a writer, one tends to become a little self-obsessed with the entire writing and editing process; thus it was refreshing to be reminded that all artists go to great lengths to improve and hone and fine-tune their work.  Apart from which, it’s a really nice music video to watch, and you know how much Nicky likes to take a peek backstage.  So grab a cuppa and enjoy!

And if you have a moment, I’d love to hear what YOU do to remind yourself of the real world when you get a little carried away in your own projects or worries. :-)
